. it went for barack obama four years ago, but then a white republican a year later in the gubernatorial election. -- then went republican a year later in the of editorial election. for gin is a battleground state, although it appears to be trendy -- virginia is a battleground state, although it appears to be trending towards romney. obama and romney have spent so much time in virginia and ohio that they will have to start paying taxes in both states. ohio? >> ohio remains beyond romney's grasp at this point in large part because obama is doing better there with white voters than he has across the country, and in the northeast of ohio, the auto bailout made a difference i. it is so much of a problem that rob portman, introducing romney in defiance, ohio in front of a huge crowd, said that "we have got to talk about this auto bailout tonight." they are still trying to explain. >> can romney win without ohio? >> yes, but it will be a tough one to reach. but it is still very close race. >> virginia? >> virginia will still probably end up in obama's camp. >> i look at the polls, and romney i
to continue to grow on coal. i think that barack obama is the best thing that happened to the republican party since jimmy carter. i just really feel, at the end of the day, people are going to wake up when they go to the polls, they're going to make the right decision. it will be mitt romney. thank you. host: moving on to elkhart, indiana. dale is on our line for independents. dale is optimistic about the economy. go ahead, dale. caller: hi. how are you? host: i'm doing fine. you say that you're optimistic about the economy. why is that? caller: well, our economy is so big, it's just going to keep going no matter what, even though we came close to falling off of a cliff, we still rebounded no matter the negative or positive attitudes that were out there. we continue to still grow. we need to have more percentage growth. but i just feel it's just going to keep going no matter what our politicians or our big business or anybody does. host: hey, dale, what kind of business are you in? what do you do for a living? caller: i'm a quality technician for aerospace components. host: and based on the t
. they are not looking for fraud. they are trying to embarrass the republicans. bad for obama to have the un in. >> and hear about the companies cutting staff and the stocks you want to hire, too. >> companies that are adding workers and ready to pay you. morgan store. >> i like them. they are hiring and analyst >> emac? >> it costs more. the stock is pricier than walmart or target. >> you like them. >> they are up 33 percent . they have a sweet dividend and hire the earnings power is so smart. i like the stock. analyst say it will slow down. >> thank you, ladies. thanks for watching and keep it right here. it continues with cashin in.
's there for the future generations, not only ours. >> i think that obama -- i think republicans try to get you into. >> i think we should give someone else a chance. the last four years have not been good. he didn't do what he promised. >> he's going to do better. >> we gave him four years. i'm a democrat, but i don't think he did his job. >> the house and the senate for two years and jobs was not part of it. >> and we've never been in debt like we are now. >> all right. so you heard it, social security, medicare, jobs, the debt. their concerns run the gamut but something immediate coming just after the first of the year that will affect the personal financial situation of virtually every american and voters are hearing virtually nothing about it from either president obama or mitt romney. this is the fiscal cliff. the $7 trillion worth of tax increases and spending cuts that begin on january 1st. i have been warning you about this part of the economic storm for months now, unless congress and the president act, your taxes will go up, millions of jobs could be lost and the congressional budget office say
the republicans--no, no, no. this is what he sees. he sees colin powell and barack obama, look at that, they're both black. that's a classic case of projection. he thinks us republicans we vote based on race. if there is a black quite versus a white guy we vote for the white guy. that's what cool bin powell is doing, too. no colin powell has a brain. 's not a gut r rctctn racisistt liou j jn sunuunu. apparently he felt bad about this again this is the eighth time he has done it on the campaign trail specifically about race. he walked it back today and said i do not doubt it was based on anything but his support of the president's policies. expect when you said it was about race. >> he's miserable miserable guy, john sununu. and he's the living embodiment of that party of a thousand years ago. >> cenk: why are they doing this. if they send sununu out he at least three different times made racial attacks on the president. do they think they he have not shored up the racial vote yet. >> it has something to do him getting elect the. but after it's all done, once you say something, and you say it
with romney at 47-47 in virginia. the republican-leaning rasmussen gave obama a two-point lead over romney in florida. david axelrod still seems confident of a obama win leaving romney to place to go. in my view we have got the lead and the ball. the question is how does he change that now. maybe so, but the job numbers that come out the friday before the election still have the potential to change the dynamics in this very tight race. for administer on this speech the every tightens polls i'm joined by christia freeland digital editor at thomson reuters and author of "plutocrats." and by robert scheer editor at truth dig.com and author of "the great american stick up up:show reagan republicans and clinton democrats enriched wall street while mugging main street street." rapid plus expeditious equals major. >> romney seems to be pivoting so far that he's presenting himself as obama 2008. that's what we heard in the foreign policy debate. and what was striking for me today is how often he referred to positively to the obama of 2008, and how he tried to sort of seize the mantle that obama c
in northeast wisconsin that swung huge for obama in 2008 and then swung violently back for the republicans in the gubernatorial races of 2010. there were countiss that president obama one by ten points and scott walker in june won by 20 points. these more rural counties are competitive, ticket splitters and those are going to be counties to watch in central wisconsin come election day. host: how does early voting factor in? guest: we don't have the same tradition. it's been growing but not at the same level. it's known as absentee voting. the window for early voting is narrower now and it's harder to track in wisconsin because we don't have registration by party so if you're trying to figure out which side is winning the early vote, it's more difficult. so i don't think we can say with confidence who has the advantage in the early voting in wisconsin. it will be significant but it won't be at the level like states like colorado. host: are voters required to show i.d.? guest: a law was passed to do that but it's held up in court so they will not be required to show photo i.d. in this electi
himself. he won the republican nomination in affluent areas and shown himself to be more articulate than president obama, the supposedly great orator. people in affluent suburbs like people who are articulate, who use words good, as i like to put it, and that is an advantage that mitt romney has and that he demonstrated to great effect there, and i think -- i wrote earlier in the washington examiner that romney was a kin dread spirit to many aflute people. politically awkward on some occasion. he is able to make a sharp point but is polite and is conservative on the cultural issues. has an attitude that reminds me of the inscription on the tombstone of an english woman which noted she was religious without enthusiasm. >> well, what's this democratic argument you're hearing now, that says, okay, all of that might be true, but republicans have no chance at michigan and pennsylvania anyway. and, look, in ohio, which the republicans have to win, romney has to win, where barack obama is still leading, still leading wisconsin and iowa and nevada. that is his fire wall, and unless romney can br
president obama. what does this say about the republican party? isn't this getting to be somewhat of a brand of the republican party? >> i think it was an unfortunate slip of words, but you're insinuating something that is absolutely accurate. my party, unfortunately, is the of those people who are still basing their decision on race. let me be candid. my party is full of racists. the real reason a considerable portion of my party wants president obama out of the white house has nothing to do with the content of his character, nothing to do with his competence, and everything to do with the color of his skin. and that's despicable. >> what does it say about mitt romney to allow john sununu to slip away with this without repurr cushion whatsoever? >> it says that mitt romney will use any tactic whatsoever to win the white house. >> colonel lawrence wilkerson, great to have you with us. i appreciate your candor so much. thank you for visiting with us tonight. >>> this isn't the first time that john sununu has engaged in race baiting. why does the romney campaign keep using this guy as a surrog
. >> meantime, president obama says he wants to work with congressional republicans to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff that would trigger tax hikes and spending cuts. two short months from now. >>> so, also new this morning, we have president obama picking up another endorsement, though not unexpected. this one coming from the chicago tribune. mitt romney and paul ryan made a joint appearance last night in the battleground state of ohio. >> not just picking a president for four years, we're picking what kind of country we're going to be. what kind of people we're going to be. what kind of country we're going to give to our kids. >> we want real change. we want big change. and paul ryan and i are going to give it to the people of america with your help. >> on the campaign trail today, mitt romney is holding three events in florida, with senator marco rubio, paul ryan's bus tour is crisscrossing ohio. president obama visits new hampshire this afternoon. and vice president biden will attend a rally in lynchburg, virginia. let's get right to it. nbc's mike viqueira is joining us from t
well, it's a republican saying this and we've heard that a few times now. >> but what the obama campaign believes is any excuse to bring this up sways women toward them. i've talked to so many women voters where they do feel tugged in two different directions. maybe they do feel they are leaning toward romney because of the economy but if you get them thinking about adorgs and the social issues, then they lean back toward obama. so if they can just make these women voters have that issue at the top of their minds instead of the economy, that's what's going to sway them. gwen: here's an issue that's not on the top of anyone's mind. even though it was the subject of the final foreign policy debate, which was this week though it feels like it was months ago. at the end it was clear both had a strategy goinging in and it had very little to do with talking about the u.s. foreign policy. >> right. there was the expected clash of world views. romney has been bush -- pushing the idea of american exceptionalism, the very muscular view of foreign policy, pushing, and right down the line ,
john king say. republicans will tell you this is the obama campaign's one trick pony but when you're on the ground in ohio talking to voters, it is something that really matters to them. one in eight jobs tied to the auto industry. >> yeah. jim, romney's speech today was described as a major speech on the economy. didn't seem like there was a lot of specifics in there. but i lost count of how many times i heard him use the word change. >> that's right. they did everything but play the song "don't stop thinking about tomorrow" going back to the bill clinton days. yes, he is talking about change, he's casting himself as the change candidate and i think that is why they went out to iowa today, not to unveil any new economic proposals. you don't really do that in the final stage of a campaign. what they wanted to do was talk about this message that they unveiled yesterday here in ohio and that he is the candidate of not just change, but big change as he likes to say on the campaign trail. >> in terms of weather, brianna, have there been any changes to the president's schedule next wee
there are 360,000 more high propensity republican voters, they far outnumber what obama has to turn out. furthermore, in the last election, 2008, 300,000 evangelicals did not turn out and obama won by, what, 260,000. there's all sorts of reasons. let me say something about the ground game. that's what -- this is my tenth presidential race. i started on the ground game. my first job, i was the butt end of an elephant in lincoln day parade. i know about the ground game. at some point, every time you ask the obama people what's so great about their ground game, they tell you how many offices they have. there's a rate of diminishing return. there's only so many voters that turn out. there's only so many phone calls you can make. if you don't have -- if they're not turning out for anything, then it doesn't matter how good your ground game is. our ground game is completely effective and it's proved itself over and over in the midterm elections. it is true what james is saying, they have this new microtargeting having your high school girlfriend call you or some of your twitter friends or some
and remember marginal obama states and usually republican. and that bringings you up to 204 and then you have florida, colorado and virginia. where the poems that i seen all show romney ahead. by reasonable margins 3-6 points and i think we have those three states. and that is 51 votes and that is to 255. and now he needs 270 to win and needs 15 extra votes and that will not be hard to do. there are eightitates with a combination of 98 electoral votes that are in the middle and in all of those they are in one or two points of each other. new hampshire contrary to the real politics average. recent and good polling shows romney two or three ahead . pennsylvania 20 votes where it shows mitt romney three ahead and ohio 18. tied . wisconsin 10, tied and michigan 15. they are tided. and minnesota 16 and obama is ahead by three . nevada 9. obama ahead by two. and iowa 6 they are tied. he's going to win at least 15 votes from the states and probably more like 45 or 50. and i think romney is on track to a significant victory and i think when we look back at this we will wonder why we thought it was so
for president obama again despite apparently still being a republican. is it time he left the party, do you think? >> well, i'm not sure how important that is. i do like the fact that colin powell's boss, george herbert walker bush, has endorsed mitt romney all along, and frankly, when you take a look at colin powell, you have to wonder whether that's an endorsement based on issues or whether he's got a slightly different reason for preferring president obama. >> what reason would that be? >> well, i think when you have somebody of your own race that you're proud of being president of the united states, i applaud colin for standing with him. >> with me now is new york mayor and obama supporter, cory booker. i watched you this morning. you seemed to be slightly biting your lip about this, but a lot of people have been getting very angry because they say whichever way john sununu tries to wriggle off the hook on this, i asked him the question, he gave a blunt answer. i asked him to clarify it, he gave a sort of blunter second answer. leaving no real wriggle room at all. the guy was saying, wi
of business. >> where do you give obama credit? most powerful arguments i hear are where a republican can give the democratic president some credit and vice versa, where a democrat can give mitt romney some credit. where do you credit the president? >> i like the drone attacks. i don't know why liberals like the drone attacks. if you're going to compare waterboarding a couple of terrorists at guantanamo three times to attacks on civilian populations to get one or two terrorists, i would say that the waterboarding is way better than that. but i think -- i think it's worth getting the terrorists. >> the only thing you can say positive about barack obama is -- >> i didn't say it was the only thing. but that's one pretty big thing. >> you think it was right to end the war in iraq? i know he didn't start that but he certainly finished it. to announce a timetable for withdrawing troops from afghanistan. you in favor of that? >> i can't say i'm in favor of the withdrawal since i was against the escalation. i don't know what the point of sending more troops to afghanistan was other than fulfilling a t
again. >> two republican senators pressed the obama administration to tell what it knows. senator bob corker accused the president's teem of a lack of truthful and after two months passed, it is time for the president to come clean and order his administration to fully disclose all information rollative to the swaution in benghazi. surely the deeth of four civil servants warrant that. >> the battle stretched in to four ho that would have been enough time for the military to arrive. >> a heart breaker. who denied them. >> no one is owning up to that decision. no one autolevel in the cia told anybody. claims to the contrary are inaccurate the they didn't get information. but john mccane the pentagon for a lack of lead areship. >> they were not prepared and no alert to enable them to reach a state of readiness. >> military leaders didn't have enough information about what was going on in the ground and could not put forces at risk. >> thank you, molly. one of the four americans killed that night. form are seal tyrone woods, a member of his family live together with judge janine on justic
when one of the most prominent republicans of the bush administration endorses a democrat for president. tonight the reaction to the endorsement is making headlines as well. colin paul, the former general carefully laid out his case in support of reelecting president obama on national television yesterday morning. >> i think generally we have come out of the dive and we're starting to gain altitude. i also saw the president get us out of one war and start to get us out of a second war and not into any new wars. i'm more comfortable with president obama and his administration when it comes to issues like what are we going to do about climate? what are we going to do about edge gag education, what are we going? what are we going to do about immigration? i think we ought to keep on the track that we are on. >> the former secretary of state ruffled some republican feathers. the romney campaign deployed former governor john sununu to respond. that's when things got ugly. >> when you take a look at colin paul, you have to wonder whether that's an endorsement mace basted on issues or whether h
to repeal obama care. so it's still a very popular issue for republicans. and the polling in north carolina still suggests that the president -- that obama care is still not very popular in north carolina although you start taking pieces of that like preexisting conditions and that sort of thing, it becomes various parts of it are more popular with the public. it's been a tough sell in north carolina. i think it's one of the reasons for example in 2010 that the state legislature went republican. it's one of the reasons that democratic congressmen lost his congressional seat here in north carolina. so it's been a tough issue for democrats. i don't think there's any question about that and a good issue for republicans. host: rob christensen talking to us from north carolina. you can read some of his writings at news observer.com. host: what are you going to be watching for on election night in north carolina? guest: the national presidential race is why people are looking at north carolina. but in the state we have -- it's been a battleground -- we have several battlegrounds going on. we have
to opt for president obama again despite apparently being a republican. is it time he left the party, do you think? >> well, i'm not sure how important that is. i do like the fact that colin powell's boss, george herbert walker bush has endorsed mitt romney all along and, frankly, when you take a look at colin powell, you have to wonder whether that's an endorsement based on issues or whether he's got a slightly different reason for preferring president obama. >> what reason would that be? >> well, i think when you have somebody of your own race that you're proud of being president of the united states, i applaud collin for standing with zblim this is why i'm not a republican anymore. this is a perfect example of -- and i say this on national tv. when john sununu's the gop poster boy and spokesman and he says stuff like that, that is why colin powell and people like myself and others, we're still -- you know, we may lean that way but we don't want to own it because of people like that. they're completely out of touch. talk about out of touch. you're supporting the president of the united

for barack obama in 2008. democrats tended to dominate the u.s. senate election. we had a big republican tidal wave in 2010. if they win the senate seat this november, it will be the first time since the 1950's we have had thought to republican senators. the state swings back and forth between the two parties. host: as far as the math is concerned, what areas of the state trench republican and what areas trent democrat -- what areas of the state trend republican and what areas trends democrat? guest: the areas for the democrats are routed milwaukee and madison. the classic areas for republicans are in southeastern wisconsin around milwaukee county and heading up along the eastern coast of wisconsin. a lot of wisconsin really does swing. there are counties in northeastern wisconsin around green bay and western wisconsin that swung huge for obama in 2008 and swung back in 2010 and the recall fight in 2012. there were counties that brothel, won signed 10 points and scott -- that barack obama won by 10 points and governor scott won. those will be counties to watch in northeastern wisconsin a
and trust. after the republican primary the obama campaign was reportedly divided on strategy. they were divided over whether they were going to try to hold mitt romney to the severely conservative positions he had to take in order to win the primary. whether they should try to make him seem like the extreme conservative he declared himself to be in order to get the nomination. the obama campaign was divided between that strategy and whether they were instead going to try to make mitt romney seem like a flip-flopper. human weather vane who would say anything he needed to to get by at that moment. they chose the former. they chose to try to hold him to the conservative positions he took in the primary. now as it comes down to the final vote, mitt romney is abandoning all those positions. from repreductive rights to health reform to his own policies. he's abandoning his own policies in a way that makes all of those policies less relevant. those positions themselves have become less relevant. and what has become relevant is his willingness to abandon them. his willingness to walk away from
